Classic Rock 102 9

Classic Rock 102 9

The Valleys only original Classic Rock Station, With new music from classic artists and a showcase for local rock bands.

Mark Bone


There's a famous scene in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" where Clark Griswold is putting up Christmas decorations, he slips on some ice on the roof, and winds up hanging from the gutter.

Well . . . the Heerlein family in Austin, Texas decided to recreate that scene for their Christmas decorations this year. So they got a dummy, dressed him up like Chevy Chase in that scene, and positioned him so he was hanging from their gutter.

And you can probably see where this is going.

Someone was walking by a few days ago and thought the dummy was real . . . so he called 911. He also tried to save the dummy and yelled for help.

Fortunately, everything got smoothed over quickly once the cops got there . . . and the Heerleins even gave the guy a gift card.

The cops aren't making them take down the decorations . . . but they did put up a sign letting people know it's fake.

      Mark BoneWhat the hell ever happened to enjoying those great carols of yesterday? Some people just want to take the fun out of Christmas...
      Over the last few years, there's been a sentiment building that the Christmas classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" gives off a slightly uncomfortable vibe.

      Where it used to be considered cute and flirty, now people are starting to see it as a song about a guy who simply won't take no for an answer. There are those who even see an element of DATE RAPE in the song . . . especially when the woman says, quote, "Say, what's in this drink?"

      With that in mind, the Cleveland radio station Star 102 dropped the song from its Christmas playlist.

      They made the announcement in a blog where they said it was the LISTENERS who actually made the call.

      They said the song now seems "very manipulative and wrong," and added, quote, "In a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place."

      Now, when they said the listeners were the ones who made the call, they were referring to an online poll they did, asking which Christmas songs they should play. But you can't see the results of that poll.

      They also put up a Facebook poll specifically asking whether or not they should play "Baby It's Cold Outside".

      If you vote, you can see the results. And as of last night, it was 94% to 6% in favor of KEEPING "Baby It's Cold Outside". The poll is still open, but it seems obvious how this is going to turn out.

      The people commenting on the poll are making themselves heard too, and they're LIVID. Maybe a little TOO livid. It's amazing, and frankly kind of sad, just how upset people are getting over this.

      Some people are actually accusing Star 102 of staging this whole thing for publicity. And they've certainly gotten their share from it. But it's hard to believe they'd invoke the #MeToo movement as part of a stunt.

          Mark BoneI do some of my best thinking in the bathroom. So I don't consider it lost time.

          A new study found the average person spends just over 15 minutes a day on the toilet. That adds up to or almost two hours a week . . . and over a lifetime, you spend about eight months sitting on the toilet. Here are five more random stats from the study . . .

          1. One-fifth of us feel weird if we don't have our phone with us on the toilet. And 5% of us have talked on the phone while using the bathroom. Which seems a little low.

          2. The majority of men think it's weird to use a urinal right next to another guy if there are other urinals open. 65% said it's "unacceptable."

          3. Women are more likely than men to strike up a conversation in a public bathroom. Probably at the sink or the mirror though, not while they're GOING to the bathroom.

          4. One in three people said sitting on the toilet is one of the only times they get to be by themselves on a daily basis.

          5. And what do you do if you use a public bathroom, then realize there's no toilet paper? 25% of people would ask a stranger to hand them some. But 24% said they'd wait until the coast was clear, then shuffle their way to another stall with their pants around their ankles. (???) (It's not clear what the other 51% would do. But whatever it is . . . gross.)

                    1967, Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones admitted in court to possession of cannabis and allowing his flat to be used for the smoking of the drug.

                                  Billy Joel is set to help honor this year's Long Island Music Hall of Fame class.
                                  Joel will help induct the 2018 class during a red-carpet gala and ceremony taking place November 8, 2018 at The Space at Westbury.
                                  Joel will induct his longtime guitarist Tommy Byrnes and singer-songwriter Elliott Murphy. Public Enemy's Chuck D will join DJ Chuck Chillout to induct rappers EPMD at this year' gala.

                                  In a recent interview with MyGlobalMind, Ted Nugent spoke about being snubbed by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, saying "Is it or is it not vulgar, dishonest, and obscene that Grand Master Flash [sic], Patti Smith, and ABBA are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame but Ted "F**ing" Nugent isn't?"
                                  He also went on to add that he "would like you to find a human being . and believe them when they say Ted Nugent should not be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? I would love to witness that exchange."
                                  It would seem that fellow legend, David Crosby has risen to the occasion to offer that exchange, by responding to Ultimate Classic Rock's tweet about the article, writing "...he's not good enough and he never will be ....a hack player and no singer at all ....could not write a decent song if his life depended on it."

                                  After a successful 10-date trek in August, which was Jeff Lynne's first in North America in over 30 years, the ELO are all set for a North American tour again next summer.

                                      1963, The Beatles kicked off their first tour of Sweden by playing two shows at Nya Aulan, Sundstavagen, Karlstad, Sweden. The local pop reviewer was not impressed, saying The Beatles should be grateful to their screaming fans for drowning out the group's terrible performance, adding that The Beatles "were of no musical importance whatsoever and that their local support group, The Phantoms, decidedly outshone them."

                                      1964, The Rolling Stones appeared for the first time on The Ed Sullivan Show from New York, performing ‘Around And Around’ and ‘Time Is On My Side’. A riot broke out in the studio, prompting Sullivan’s infamous quote, ‘I promise you they’ll never be back on our show again.’ The Rolling Stones went on to make a further five appearances on Sullivan’s show between 1965 and 1969.

                                      1966, Aged 7 months old, Jeff Healey had his right eye surgical removed (and subsequently his left eye, 4 months later), and replaced with artificial ones, necessitated by a form of cancer of the eyes called retinoblastoma. Three years later Healey was given his first guitar by his father. At the age of 13, the Canadian guitarist formed his first band, Blue Direction.

                                      1968, Led Zeppelin played a gig at Surrey University, England. Although there are unconfirmed reports of earlier shows, this appears to be the band's first gig with their new name after initially performing as The New Yardbirds. In 2003 a poster for the Surrey gig (billing the group as The New Yardbirds) sold at auction for £2,400.

                                      1968, The double album 'Electric Ladyland' by the The Jimi Hendrix Experience was released. It was also made available as two albums with changed artwork after complaints about the naked women who were pictured on the sleeve. The female models were each paid £5 for the photo shoot and another £5 if they posed completely naked.

                                            Mark BoneBeatles stuff and Pearl Jam stuff for you in todays look at Rock and Roll history...

                                            1990, Pearl Jam played their first ever concert when they appeared at the Off Ramp in Seattle.

                                            1996, It was announced that, "The Beatles were now bigger than The Beatles". The statement was based on sales so far this year, having sold 6,000,000 albums from their back catalogue and a combined total of 13,000,000 copies of ‘The Beatles Anthology 1’ and ‘The Beatles Anthology 2’. With the release of ‘The Beatles Anthology 3’ a week away, it was anticipated that total Beatles album sales for 1996 would exceed 20 million. A poll showed 41 percent of sales were to teenagers who were not born when The Beatles officially called it quits in 1970.

                                            2000, George Michael paid £1.45m for the Steinway piano on which John Lennon wrote 'Imagine'. George said, "I know that when my fingers touch the keys of that Steinway, I will feel truly blessed. And parting with my money has never been much of a problem, just ask my accountant." The singer outbid Robbie Williams and The Oasis brothers.

                                            2000, Pearl Jam appeared at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, California, celebrating the tenth anniversary of their first live performance as a band.

                                            2008, A homeless man claimed a £2,000 reward by returning a waxwork head of ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney which had been left on a train. Anthony Silva found the item in a bin at Reading station after auctioneer Joby Carter left it under a seat at Maidenhead station. The homeless man thought it was a Halloween mask and had been using it as a pillow before realising what it was. The wax model sold the following week for £5,500 at auction.
